. but getting back to president obama, it's almost a full year, jon, into his re-election and you've been talking about how difficult his presidency has been, specifically over the past year. if you compare it to recent presidents before him, their approval rating at this very same time, president clinton and reagan both doing far better than president obama at this time. george w. bush was slightly lower at 37%. but this is the same president who it seemed could do no wrong when he was re-elected. ari often reminds me that in politics things can move very slow and they can also move very fast. >> only ari knows that? oh. >> and former white house adviser spoke to this on this week last week wanting it to move quickly. let's take a listen. >> people trust this president. i think there's been numbers all over the place. i'm confident in a few months from now those trust numbers are going to come up. i think his approval number will come up. >> that's obviously what every democrat wants. jon, it seems like this is a year the administration is wanting to put behind them very quickly. >> yeah
for 20 years. >> reporter: today president obama will be focusing on young people, as i said, he'll deliver remarks at a youth summit on the affordable care act. chris and kate, young people are very key to this whole program working. they are healthier, so they're less expensive to care for. it's key to have them in there so they can offset older, less healthy, more expensive folks. >> absolutely right, brianna, coming to us live from the white house lawn this morning. thank you. >>> a new video shedding more light this morning on the death of actor paul walker and the very first minute after that car crash. the "fast & furious" star and a friend were killed in that fiery wreck, you'll remember, this weekend. casey wian joins us now with much more into the investigation on just what went wrong. >> reporter: new video showing that it took a full minute for the speeding car that actor paul walker and his friend were in to explode. after it crashed, raising new questions about how they died. >> chilling new video showing the crash that killed actor paul walker and his friend, roger
thing everybody found out is that the obama administration was completely unprepared, even after those 3 1/2 years, was completely unprepared for this rollout of obamacare that started october 1st. remember subsidies are supposed to start flowing on january 1st. that is less than a month away. and the system, to which they're supposed to go isn't even built yet. melissa: no. in fact i saw an ad this morning, it was playing during my kids cartoons. it was unbelievable. said, don't forget you need to sign up by december 23rd. get on the website, sign up, if you don't do it by then, you won't have health care by the fist. this is ad we paid for playing on morning children's television and still the website is not done and it is not safe. there are more and more folks out there saying it is rife with fraud. that the security isn't there. byron, would you go on and enter your information at this point? would you feel safe doing that? >> i would not. this is 19 days away that we're talking about. you have to remember there is so much politics is at play here. i think any reasonable person woul

think, willie, republicans can make the argument that we are where we are four years later because barack obama's policies have made things worse. if we want to make that argument we can make that argument. but it's harder for us. it does not help us, i don't think with swing voters to say we'll do you guys a favor and cut off all your unemployment benefits. >> i don't think that helps. i'm just thinking it doesn't. >> it's not a good message. steve, your first chart on the minimum wage is 7.25 right now. let's say you get 40 hours a week, 52 weeks that comes to $15,000 a year which puts you below the poverty line. >> one of the ways people are pushing back on this perfect storm against people at the bottom is by focusing on the minimum wage. the minimum wage is $7.25 as you see here on this chart. which is not oddly enough the lowest. these are all inflation adjusted. they go back to the 1960s. in the 1960s it was $9.50. went down in the '80s. oddly enough it was president bush's administration that pushed a three step increase that took it back up to $7.25. it's been declining in
he had to say. [video clip] last week, the obama administration tried to hide another unilateral, one-year obamacare. just like in july, right before holiday,endence day the administration try to hide the one-year delay of the business mandate. president obama and others have tried to hide what they knew problems wellite before the website launched. administration tries to continue to hide problems on the website.of the the administration has tried to hide the security problems that that one official called the website'sr to launch. the president and house democrats tried to hide for millions of americans would lose the coverage that they liked. the president and house democrats tried to hide for years that many americans will access to the doctors, the pediatricians, and perhaps even the hospitals that they choose. at this point, one has to ask, what else are they hiding? congressman. think they're hiding anything, frankly. i think when you are pushing timehing out for the first , you do not immediately say everything that is wrong. then people will say, -- they work anding to make it the
as obama's have this year. history also suggest that there are two types of white house shakeups. he fires somebody anybody as a is a cry official lamb. the second is deep cleansing. jim, the question everybody asks does he have this in him? >> it's nuts. he's not going to fire his staff. he's not going to make that kind of change. at the end of the day the white house reflects the president. are your going to bring in different staff and have new blood in his veins. that's not how presidents work. he never wanted to have people around him who he doesn't consider close in many cases intimate friends. that's where his comfort zone is. he won't bring in republicans and bring in old hands from the democratic party. it sounds good but it's not sensical. he won't do it. >> why? >> one he only has a couple of years left in the white house. he likes those around him. the chief of staff is relatively new. it's a different team. you don't have rahm emanuel or david plouff or david, ale rod or robert gibbs. you have a lot on this show talk about what's going on but not advising him. there is new blo
able to visit the site in two years. meanwhile president obama said the pursuit of a longstanding deal with iran to monitor its weapons is likely to fail as it is to succeed. he was talking at a pro-israel forum in washington. iran will roll back it's enrichment of uranium, which can be used to build a nuclear bomb, but also to generate energy. >> we have to not constantly assume that it's not possible r possible for iran, like any country to change over time. it may not be likely. if you ask me what is the likelihood at us arriving at the end state that i described earlier, i wouldn't say that it's more than 50/50. we have to try. >> iran, the u.s. and five other world powers will meet in the coming days to discuss a 6-month agreement. >> we are cracking a storm system creating problems. let's bring in metrologist eboni dean. >> i'm tracking a storm system in the east and a storm system across the west that will make its way east ward, merging with the system in place. it will create more travel woes across the north-east and great lakes. now. we have a wide area dealing with the snow
, whether you like the bill or not, for the next three years it is going to be law. until president obama is no longer in the white house, then we have a discussion about repeal. then republicans need to stop saying we need to get it off the books. >> sam, what are they accusing him of? it's like if a baseball batter gets a strike called on him, you don't accuse him of not trying to hit the ball. if you try to hit the ball and fail, that's what obama did here. it was a poor rollout. >> yeah. >> are they accusing him of wanting to have a poor rollout? it seems like they're saying he lied. he wanted this to be lousy. what are they actually accusing him of? >> that's the irony of the criticism. they say the website is so poor. it's not letting people buy coverage. it's not what you promised it to be. and we don't want people to buy coverage. it would be bad for femme. so there is a general inconsistency to the criticism here. but again, the president stressed it today. for the next three years, he will be in the oval office. the repeal movement is for that period of time dead. there is no re
